Big baby in Massachusetts - level 2
A hospital in Massachusetts welcomed a big baby. The girl weighed 14 and a half pounds (6.6 kilograms) and she was 22 inches long (56 centimetres).
She was the second biggest baby the staff ever delivered. They delivered her via c-section. Her parents were prepared for her birth because her older sister was also a big baby.
Difficult words: staff (people who work at the hospital), deliver (to help a woman give birth to her baby), c-section (operation when they open a woman’s body and take the baby out).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
